Covid-19 update

Prospective tenants please note that whilst we are in lock-down due to the Covid 19 crisis, we will not be accepting any new applications to the waiting list at the shop on Saturday mornings. Please instead send your name, address, telephone number and email address to:

whitemoorsecretary@gmail.com

Once we have your application we will send you an email confirmation that you have been added to the waiting list.

COVID-19 ADVICE

Please don’t be afraid – the allotments are open and a great place to be! How blessed are we to have hedged-off spaces to escape to. I might even grow some food this year! However, we do need to be wise and exercise some caution. We have discussed various things amongst the committee and will send out a letter and email in due course with some updates outlining a few important things. However in the mean time please try and remember the following things:

1) Think about the communal lock. Either sanitise your hands before and after or wear gloves or have a cloth with you. The same goes for the compost toilet.

2) Please do not enter other peoples’ allotments unless they invite you in there and then

3) Please keep a good distance away from people

4) Do smile at each other and wave

The shop will remain open for as long as is viable but we will be managing the space carefully.

Please look out for each other and help, encourage and inspire each other in this time of isolation.

If you are struggling, please email me at the whitemoor secretary account or call the site phone and leave a message and I will get back to you.

Stay safe, think about others’ safety and enjoy the gardening…

RENT TAKING 2020

It is that time of year when rents are due and new tenancy agreements are signed.  I’m afraid we won’t be encouraging people to hang around and chat this year (no drinks or biscuits) and we trust everyone will respect social distancing when they go to pay their rent.

  • Everyoneย must pay their rent between 10 and 12.00 any Saturday in October (There will be a late payment fee and you run the risk of relinquishing your plot if you do not pay in October) If there is a really good reason why you cannot make that particular time then please email whitemoorsecretary@gmail.com and we will work out a mutually convenient time.
  • Rents remain the same as last year (some slightly less to account for their volunteering hours)
  • Cheque or cash – I’m afraid we don’t have the facility to take cards
  • Please wear a mask (we will be providing some if you need one)
  • You are eligible for a 25% discount if you are in receipt of a state pension or on job seekers allowance (we are only allowed to give this benefit if we see evidence of your eligibility so please bring that with you). I’m sorry apparently tax credits are not counted.
